Do you find it challenging waking up after hitting the sack? Morning people usually stay proactive during the day, and this makes their work easy and their output more productive. Many successful company CEOs are generally up by 5 am. Being tired is the root of waking up late and can at times be chronic, hence the need for a new approach with Traditional Chinese Medicine.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the stomach is associated with worry. Many people spend a good part of their day worrying about what they eat and how it affects their health and life.
THE BENEFITS OF MINDFULNESS
The chances are good that you've at least heard about mindfulness—and perhaps are also aware of its benefits. Some of the most inspiring of these proven benefits of mindfulness include:
The good news: The smoking rate of Australian adults has nearly halved since 1995 and is now hovering around 12.8 percent, according to a 2016 survey. The bad news: You or someone you love is addicted and needs help.
In recent years, acupuncture has been demonstrated to be an effective treatment for a number of health issues including nausea, vomiting, bodily pain, and many others. It may also be effective in treating a number of other problems. This ancient system of health is based on the body's natural energy flow known as chi or qi, and on the balance of the yin and yang energies. Auricular acupuncture works in much the same way as traditional acupuncture, except it focuses exclusively on the human ear. It may seem strange at first glance, but there are signs that auricular acupuncture is not only effective but that it also holds its own unique benefits.
Traditional Chinese medicine refers to a collection of health practices that originated in China, some of them over thousands of years ago. Most people have a passing familiarity with some of the practices, including acupuncture, cupping, tai chi, and qi gong. With such a diverse range of practices, and the modern interest in alternative medicines, traditional Chinese medicine has experienced a surge in popularity, but it may have you wondering if the excitement is justified and backed by science. Research into traditional Chinese medicinal practices is still relatively new, which means that while it is too early to form conclusions, there are promising studies demonstrating the efficacy of traditional Chinese medicine.
In traditional Chinese medicine, massage is a technique used to open up and clear the body's natural energy pathways. Through a combination of medicinal herbs and targeted pressure points, TCM works to restore a healthy balance throughout the body. These ancient 2000-year-old methods have been shown to provide a range of benefits including reduced stress, improved blood circulation, reduced nausea and migraines, and many others.
A migraine is usually defined as a recurrent throbbing headache that often affects only one side of the head and possibly accompanied by nausea and blurry vision. According to HeadacheAustralia.org, 23% of households contain at least one migraine sufferer.
A migraine is an interaction between the brain and the blood vessels that feed the brain that went a bit haywire. Some parts of the brain, overstimulated, started to secrete chemicals that affect the blood vessels near it. The tightening of blood vessels causes the trigeminal nerve pain circuits to trigger, which manifests as a migraine.
The pain of cramps can be debilitating, causing you to miss work, cancel appointments and curl into a ball until the aches subside -- until you have to do it all over again next month.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), "there is no separation between the mind and body – they are interconnected and affect each other in health." This synergy is why your stomach hurts when you're anxious, or your neck aches when you're stressed, or your energy levels are depleted when you're depressed. For 3,000 years, TCM has provided "a safe and an effective help on the treatment of stress-related disorders," treating both the symptoms and causes of our bodies' imbalances. If you've reached your stress tipping point, consider these alternative treatments.
